With the general election well underway, many voters remain unexcited by the presumptive Democratic and Republican nominees, giving third-party candidates an opportunity to elbow their way onto the race’s main stage. One third-party candidate is hoping to cash in on supporters of Democratic candidate Bernie Sanders who may be disillusioned with their party’s current presumptive nominee. But who Jill Stein picks as her vice president could impact her favorability with Sanders supporters.
Stein began seriously courting Sanders supporters earlier this week when, in an interview with CNN’s “New Day,” she offered up her Green Party as a viable means of continuing the revolution the Vermont senator started should he choose to endorse presumptive Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the end. “If Bernie endorses Hillary, I urge Bernie’s supporters not to throw in the towel,” Stein said. “We are here in the event that they feel like they don’t have a place to go.”
